Contact lenses are more popular today than ever before, primarily because advances in contact lens material and manufacturing technology have led to the production of comfortable, healthy, convenient, economical, high quality vision care that lets you look your best. Our Carteret optometrists note that even daily disposable lenses are available with premium comfort and ease of use.
Single use contacts “are good for those patients who have trouble with long term contact lens wear. Our patients like them not only for the convenience of not having to deal with solutions and cases, but also for the comfort and stable vision that they provide,” says Dr. Harmer.
Daily Disposables: Pros and Cons
There are many “pros” associated with daily disposable contact lenses. They are easy to use and your eyes are treated to a clean pair every morning. You don’t need contact lens cleansing or storage solutions, yet you don’t have to worry about protein deposit build up which can lead to eye allergies and dry eyes.
If you engage in sports and outdoor activities, daily disposable contact lenses are associated with fewer contamination; many athletes swear by them. You don’t have to worry about losing your lenses while traveling, since you would have a supply of lenses as back up.
Did you think were a bad candidate for contacts? Think again!
It was once thought that certain people could never wear contact lenses, like if they had astigmatism or dry eyes. Fortunately, we have come a long way, and our Carteret optical offers many more options, including disposable soft contact lenses for our patients who are hard to fit.
We carry Toric lenses for astigmatism, and moisturizing lenses for dry eye, among others. Now you can wear daily disposable contact lenses with ultimate comfort.
